Take a Blind Date with a Free eBook

This weekend, why not take a blind date with a free eBook?

For years, libraries around the country have offered patrons a “blind date with a book.” They wrapped a book in brown paper to hide its true identity, offering a coy description of its contents. Like any good blind date, you have to give the mystery book a try.

We’ve adapted the concept for our digital reading audience, creating blind date descriptions for five free and classic digital books below. Over at AppNewser, you can take a blind date with a free app.

If you click on the links, you can download a copy for your eReader or read online from Project Gutenberg. Give a new book a try!
